Just How Crazy Are The Crazy Ants In Salt Lake City?

If you're currently dealing with a crazy ant issue in your Salt Lake City home, you know just how crazy these ants are. But if you haven't had the misfortune just yet, we have a few facts to share with you. These facts could help you respond to crazy ants faster and help you mitigate the damage these ants can do and the distress they can cause.

How They Move

When crazy ants come into a yard, they can come by the millions. Some have found these ants piled next to exterior walls in heaps, with live ants crawling over mounds of dead ants. Some have seen so many ants that they said it looked like the ground was moving! The amazing numbers these ants can mobilize is probably the most startling fact about them. It's crazy!

It is important to understand this. If crazy ants get into your home, it can become a nightmare if you try to get rid of them on your own. It is best to have a licensed pest management professional select appropriate EPA-approved products and apply them strategically to get the desired results.

Problems They Cause

Aside from the sheer numbers being an incredible nuisance, crazy ants present another issue. When these ants get into air conditioning units, appliances, electrical boxes, and motor vehicles, they can cause things to short out or get clogged. They can bite through the protective shield on wires, and their overwhelming numbers get into every nook and cranny. These ants are known to cost property owners a pretty penny to replace parts on these items. In some cases, it is better to replace the entire item.

It Is Best To Deal With Crazy Ants Early

When these ants invade your home, they can get in the walls, ceilings, and floor voids. They can fill these areas with incredible numbers, and make it difficult, and costly, for a pest management professional to address the problem. It is far better to recognize these ants early and to contact a licensed professional before they get into the house.

What Attracts Crazy Ants?

These ants are attracted to damp habitats and yard debris. If you reduce these attractants, you could deter an infestation. Here are a few ant tips:

  • Make sure your gutter system is doing its job. This will prevent oversaturation of the soil near your home.
  • Repair leaky sprinklers, hoses, spigots, and plumbing. The last thing you want near your home is puddles.
  • Address conditions that allow for the capture of rainwater, such as compacted soil or ground depressions.
  • Trim vegetation to provide the best airflow for your landscaping. Dense vegetation captures moisture.
  • Water your landscaping in the early morning to allow the sun to dry things up.
  • Rake leaves up and remove them.
  • Locate and remove any wasps nests. These are an amazing attractant for crazy ants.

How To Keep Crazy Ants Out

A crazy ant is between 1/16 and 1/8 of an inch long, depending on the species. It's hard to keep something this tiny out of your home, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try. Do an inspection of your exterior and use a caulking gun to apply a seal to every gap, crack, and hole you can find.
